E-Greetings from the Allergy Advocacy Association
Valentine greetings! Know that you are always in our hearts and minds. This month we give you a complete rundown of popular Valentine’s Day candy that might contain nuts and other allergens based on how they are produced. Be sure to remind your child’s teachers of any food allergies for all the Valentine’s Day celebrations.
This spring season the Allergy Advocacy Association will be participating with other activists at the New York State Capitol in Albany. The date for our Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Awareness Event will be Wednesday, May 16th at the entrance to the Legislative Office Building located in the capitol concourse. We sincerely hope that you can attend.
Here is a reminder of a couple of research opportunities if you are able to help:
If you are pregnant or just had a baby, The Department of Pediatrics, Division of Allergy and Immunology at the University of Rochester is looking for a study participant just like you! For more information please call 585-275-8991 or visit University of Rochester Children's Hospital web page.
Become a FARE Advocate for Research!
Food Allergies Research and Education (FARE) has collected some incredible data since the launch of the FARE Patient Registry, with more than 2,000 patients enrolled. But they need to grow the registry further, because more data means greater opportunities for breakthroughs.
Add your history to our growing database of food allergy patients by completing surveys and more.
